Indicators expected indicators
Indicators & Expected Indicators

  • “Indicators”are rapid improvement evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom level used to improve student learning.

    • Each Indicator relates to a Student and School Success Principle (“Turnaround” Principles)

    • Wise Way Research is provided for every indicator

  • “ExpectedIndicators” are those that OSPI has designated as expected to be addressed in school action plans.

    • Schools must have one “active” Expected Indicator per Student and School Success Principle from the bank of 17 School-level Expected Indicators

    • District Plans must address all 13 District-level Expected Indicators

Example student and school success principle expected indicators
Example: Student and School Success principle & Expected Indicators

Expected Indicators aligned to Principle 5:

Principle 5:

Use data to inform instruction and for continuous improvement, including by providing time for collaboration on the use of data

P5-IID08: Instructional teams use student learning data to assess strengths and weaknesses of the curriculum and instructional strategies.

(Instructional Framework, Multi-Tiered Framework, Smarter Balanced Assessments)

P5-IID12: All teachers monitor and assess student mastery of standards-based objectives in order to make appropriate curriculum adjustments. (Instructional Framework, Multi-Tiered Framework)


  • S.M.A.R.T. goals/objectives articulate both the evidence supporting the strategy and measurable outcomes for students and educators. The acronym “S.M.A.R.T.” is used to describe goals/objectives that are:

  • Specific,

  • Measurable,

  • Actionable/Attainable,

  • Realistic/Results-oriented, and

  • Timely/Time-bound

  • “If we do ___, then we impact ___, that results in ___.”

Handbooks to guide and support the process: Indicators

Action-Planning Handbook for School Teams and their Districts-examine ways to increase educator capacity& improve student achievement-use the Indistar action-planning tool to assess, create, & monitor Student and School Success Action Plan, as well as integration of Title I Schoolwide Plan.

Required Action District (RAD) Guidance Handbook-companion to the Action-Planning Handbook-in depth description of all RAD requirements and steps to exit required action status-guidance when building upon Student and School Success Action Plan when addressing concerns raised in the Academic Performance Audit Report
